Detailed Product Description
New York, Alfred A. Knopf, 1922, 1st US edition, 6th printing. 431 pp. Brown cloth titled in orange and gilt on the cover and spine and dustjacket. Book and jacket are Fine.

Author's fourth novel and winner of the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for Fiction. "A surrealistic novel, told in the first person. The protagonist and principle narrator "Miss M." is playfully referred to as "Midgetina" by her faithless friend, Fanny. Hers is the story of a person who, though at home in nature and literature, is physically, spiritually, and intellectually out of place in the world. Her exact size is never made clear and seems to shift throughout the story. At times she is described as being of Thumbellina-like smallness. She recounts that she remembers as a child her father lifting her up in the palm of his hand to see herself in a small mirror" (from Wikipedia).
